Designing a range of rods to cover every likely fly fishing scenario is a tricky task, but Sportfish Designer Danny North rose to the challenge and has created a set of tools to meet the exacting demands of the modern fly angler.
Perfect for the beginner, or indeed for the improver looking to progress to the next level, the Purecast fly fishing rod series runs from a 7ft #4 up to a 10ft #7 with models geared for everything from delicate small stream work, through to reservoir angling, right up to single-handed salmon and sea trout fishing.
NEW VIDEO REVIEW: Few people know more about rods and how to get the best from them than Jonathan Tomlinson, so check out JT’s short video assessment of the range and see how a Purecast rod could be the ideal start to your trout fishing ‘adventure’ or how one could move your fly fishing onto the next level.
The easy-cast actions are great for novices and are precisely tailored to the job they are designed to do. The 7ft #4, for example, has a slow middle action to load the rod quickly with little line out, whereas the 9ft 6in #7 has a faster tip action to help add those all-important extra yards for stillwater usage.
“Within the range I have created a rod capable of handling any water you are likely to visit”
Cosmetically the rods feature a smart anti-flash matt olive green finish, bespoke reel fittings with a carbon insert and the highest quality flor-grade cork handles. Stripping rings are silicon carbide lined, with the rest lightweight, single-legged and designed with performance in mind. Overall the result across the range is rods that don’t just look good, but which are also lightweight, perfectly balanced and deadly accurate.
To complete an amazing package all of the rods are 4-piece and supplied in a high quality cloth bag and a tough Cordura hard case, making them perfect for transportation – wherever you are heading.
“No other rod on the market offers as much value at this price.”
